The filters are the core of every air-con unit, as it is where air passes through and circulates through the system. At the same time, dirt also passes through the filter with the airflow, and when passed through the evaporator coil, will affect heat absorption. Your dirt filters will disrupt the normal flow of air, resulting in reduced efficiency.
Apart from its filters, your air-conditioner’s evaporator coil and condenser coil collects dirt on its own over time.
Despite having a regularly maintained filter, dirt will still accumulate on the coils, which will impair its ability to absorb heat. For outdoor condenser coils, you can observe if dirt collects on its fins.
Coil fins are located on the evaporator and condenser coils. These can become bent easily and cause a blockage to airflow through the coils.
Drain channels in your air-conditioner help to reduce humidity, and any clogging of the channels will cause moisture to form. This can cause discoloration to your walls or any household items.
Air-conditioner maintenance is not a simple task. You will require several tools and equipment, and a certain level of skill and experience to know what to look out for.
Having a weak grasp of how to service and clean your air-conditioner unit may result in more problems. It would be a wiser choice to hire a professional technician, as they would be more familiar with the various problems of air-conditioners.
